Property Appraiser – February 2024 Update

Automatic Renewal for the Limited-Income Senior Exemption 

A change in the Limited-Income Senior Exemption renewal process no longer requires seniors to sign and return a renewal card.  After the initial application approval, the Senior Exemption automatically renews each year unless the senior notifies our office that they exceed the income requirement for this exemption. People who received the Senior Exemption in 2023 and are still living at the same address do not need to send in a signed renewal card to continue receiving this exemption.

Our office will mail the 2024 Senior Exemption income limit information later this month as set by the state of Florida. 

  • If your 2023 adjusted household gross income does not exceed the amount set by the state for the 2024 tax year, you DO NOT need to do anything to continue receiving this valuable exemption for 2024. Your exemption will automatically be renewed provided you are still living at the same address and receiving Homestead Exemption.
  • If your 2023 adjusted household gross income did exceed the income limitation, you must notify our office that you no longer qualify for this tax year when you receive the annual income notification from our office.

If you did not receive the Senior Exemption for 2023 and you believe you may qualify, please visit our website at web.bcpa.net and click on the “Senior Exemption” icon to view this exemption and all the other available exemptions.  You can also apply online at https://web.bcpa.net/bcpaclient/#/SeniorExemption. The deadline to apply for any 2024 exemption is September 18, 2024.

 If my office can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at martykiar@bcpa.net.

Take care,
